DaHUD was originally written by Benumbed. He has gone away now, or at least apparently abandoned the project.
I have been using DaHUD since about the middle of the last expansion, or it feels like it. It was highly configurable and pretty reliable. I just wanted it to look like drathal's hud. I finally managed to make a plugin for DaHUD to do just that.
Then Lich King came out and broke a few things. Actually, the mod worked but spit out a lot of errors for missing or changed spellids. There may be other things, but I haven't seen them.
I quickly patched up the holes and went on with it suppressing the LUA errors. I waited a time to see if Benumbed would updated it. I also was engaged in playing the game.
I believe sufficient time has now passed. This has no new features. For the technically minded, what I did was find that several functions and variables were no longer required due to changes in how UnitBuffs() works now.
So, the end result is its a little smaller and takes a little less memory as there is no longer a requirement to keep a database of spells each class can cast on each other an enemies in order to determine if a buff/debuff was cast by the player (for the large buff icon module).
I played with the errors on all day yesterday and not one popped up. That doesn't mean one isn't hiding anywhere just like any other piece of software.
I have no plans or desire to add any new features or make any new display modules. It is already very configurable.
This is basically DaHud without the missing spellid errors.
